You're correct that he needs to prove himself at a higher level than the ECHL. But with the lockout in place, he's being blocked by Holtby (who's dominating for Hershey in the AHL). He looked very sharp in his one and only AHL game so far, but we'll have to wait and see how his progresses in general.
i watched him when he played for windsor, played behind a very good team and he was the only weak link, not so much a weak link but not as much a strength as other positions windsor had, he only had a 909 sv pct, which is pretty good for junior, but he wasnt a brick wall by any means. i liken him to jake deserres in having played in front of a good team a good goalie but not a great one.
